Gaming to Connect: Resilient Young People @ Mundaring Wellness Centre with Graeme Jarred and Charles Snelleksz-Mathelot
Sun 24th January 2021 ~ 3.30pm to 5.30pm | Free
Calling All Gamers – Gaming to Connect, is a fun workshop for parents and their children. In supporting parents to remember what it feels like to be a young person and how important it is to have fun with their children, our aim, is that parents will find fun ways through which they can connect with their children and maintain healthy connected relationships. While the workshop’s main directive is to address youth resilience, our focus is directed toward the parents because research has shown that when parents take a meaningful interest in the lives of their children, young people are more likely to be resilient.
